Executives from Advance Publications confirmed an order for a six-tower Goss Magnum Compact press following live print tests at the Goss manufacturing facility. Pictured from the left are: Peng Yong, Ben Liang, Goss International; Keith Dawn, Staten Island Advance, associate publisher; Wesley Clements, Mark Oggero, Goss International; Mark Grunlund, Advance Central Services, director of manufacturing; Russ Kliese, Goss International; John Giustiniani, Staten Island Advance, director of production; Dan Picco, Goss International; Bob Walters, Staten Island Advance, commercial print manager.
Advance Publications will install a new Goss Magnum Compact press this fall in Staten Island, NY—a move that will add versatile, short-run capability in combination with output capacity approaching that of its existing double-width system. The installation, which is expected to be completed by October, will make Advance Publications the first United States user of the press. 

The six full-color Magnum Compact print towers and one folder will accommodate a growing volume of contract newspaper, commercial and insert printing, and also backup a double-width press used to print the daily Staten Island Advance newspaper.
